the election. on the other hand we seem to be here in the united states helping morsi selling military equipment to him as we speak. what do we make of morsi? >> well, morsi is the first democratically elected president that egypt has ever had. he did not win by a large margin but did he win. instead of trying to governor in a consensus fashion recognizing that he did not win by a large margin recognizing that there still isn't a parliament, there are going to be elections later this spring, instead of trying to put together a national unity government, having opposition forces in his cabinet and so for the, he has governed as a muslim brother. he has the religious right in all the key positions and he has alienated people this way. >> cenk: it's really interesting because on the other hand israel seems to be fairly happy with him, so are we. we send in more aid and military weapons to help him. that's something you might not necessarily expect. he's deep muslim brotherhood in domestic policies of egypt, but externally seems to be saying the right things. >> externally he has not rocke
of the wealthyiest individuals in the nation. the home of the president of the united states, operation push and oprah winfrey. at the same time you have african-americans who have been locked out of jobs, educational opportunities for decades. so although you do have some of these similarities between japan and let's say chicago and say look at the lack of gun violence overseas you have to look at some of the social issues as well where people are locked out of institutions that would allow them to get ahead. if you take that into play and then incorporate guns with individuals who have already learned by sixth and seventh grade that they're going to have a hard time getting ahead in life by the normal means add to that the proliferation of gangs throughout the chicagoland, you have the recipe for disaster that we've been seeing over the last several years. >> cenk: and a huge part that have recipe is when you sprinkle in all that weaponry. one last question for you lenny. you're doing this really interesting run in chicago. look jesse jackson's seat was one of the safest democratic seats i
's questioning the full phase and credit of the united states of america and putting us over that cliff. now vice president biden told us oh, they'll never do that. the wall street journal will wrote an editorial that they will run scared. they're radical. a number of them have said if we have to destroy the credit of the country in order to get what we want which is down-sized libertarian type of a country we'll do it. >> cenk: you may be thinking cenk, congressman defazio you may be right about tax cuts. maybe. we have some tax increases, but over all as you can see from all the fact that we gave you the rich god enormous tax cuts, right? still. but wait a minute. aren't there parts of the deal that are good for the middle class? there are improved child tax credit. earned income tax credit extended for five years. notice those are not permanent. they're only for five years. no cuts to snap. wow, are they not merciful, and unemployment benefits was extended for one year. tax cuts permanent, unemployment extended for one year. let me tell you what a load of crap that is. oh wow unemployment bene

of the hand behind the puppet of the nra markets guns to the shrinking minority of people in the united states, and we know fewer and fewer people own more and more guns. that's a proven fact, to market to those people, you have to tell them, here is the latest thing. the nra goes along with this, the fan magazine, it's in a way just a big advertisement. it's also an example of the blatant hypocrisy and bald face lying that the nra is capable of doing and does every day. >> cenk: so tom talk to me about the power of the nra. is it because they spend money in politics or is it the voters? how do they amass so much power? >> well, the nra really does not have that much power. if you look at their electoral record, who they backed in the last election, who they opposed and they really wanted to take down barack obama. if you look at the record, they have not done very well. this is a self-serving myth that surprisingly enough people who call themselves progressives, liberals democrats have bought into. they make the nra as powerful as can be. look you're not going to beat the nra in a state that

the united states and now it's costing business in mississippi. and then we have a person who is an activist for the dream act and then all of a sudden her mother gets picked up by the authorities. get a look at this reaction. [ sobbing ] >> cenk: she's going to be on the show today. and then finally here we go again, another republican talking about legitimate rape. >> it is true. we tell couples all the time who are having trouble consuming because of the woman not ovulating, just relax. >> cenk: now wait until you find out the number of women who get pregnant because of rape in america. it's a stunning number. this is a stunning show. go time.

same objective could be achieved by building one-man units. and this links you to a nasa page that sends a text message when the existing international space station is about to flow over your house, and finally it links to a project attempting to build the same kind of robotic prosthetic hand that luke has. it's pretty awesome. the white house response these people got is priceless. i'm done talking now. ♪ >> jennifer: all right. somebody is always in our war room. check us out online at current.com/thewarroom. you can find our twitter page, our facebook page, and our exclusive web extras. have a great night. we'll see you back here tomorrow. >> cenk: welcome to the "the young turks." we got a great show for you guys tonight. alex jones remember the guy raving about gun control. 1776 on "the young turks." alex jones is here. >> i'm sick of glenn beck. i'm sick and tired of him. he's a punk. he called me a fascist. this is the guy who made jokes about torture and said it was a good thing. >> cenk: wait until you get a load of what he said jon stewart. nothing but
of the constitution and second alternate. the united states did not have an early. that's why you need the well regulated state militias. the original in tent was to make sure we have the militias. we now have kind of an army, so the whole idea that it's the same exact situation as when we had the second amendment put into the constitution is insanity. it's not even close to the truth. >> you know, and there's so many ways to pick that argument apart when you look at savory, all the things they actually did amend because times have changed and that's exactly what happened and alluded to the fact that these are common sense. why aren't these common sense initiatives working? i bring you to texas and state representative steve toth. >> we insure that as texas we follow the united states constitution. if this government in tricks on our second amendment right giving us the right not only to bear articles but tells the federal government not to create any laws that infringes on those rights, we will do everything we can to push back against that. >> cenk: this is one of three lunatics across the co
, unfortunately, post citizens united, money rules the world. you're keeping it real, right? the second part of it is, you can't be bluffing. if you say hey listen, i'm going to do this and i'm going to stick to it, well, then the obama administration as we've teen them into time and time again with republicans they'll bend. >> they respond they absolutely respond. you know, we looked at -- we reported at the advocate that the breakdown of straight voters went roughly 49% to each obama and romney, but lgbt went for obama. they decided the election. >> cenk: i think 76% is too low. which lgbt is voting for republicans these days. [ laughter ] >> cenk: the nones not affiliated with any religion are 20% of the country and went to obama, but they have zero political power. they're not focused. they don't make demands. they're not an activist group that say take us seriously and don't have the money to back it up. that's an enormous difference. giglio he's fighting against sex slavery, et cetera. >> very important work in that reward. some say this happened 15 years ago. is it fair to say this is
the most important poll that the congress of the united states should be paying at attention to is the one coming on the first tuesday after the first monday 22 months from now. that's the only poll that really matters. >> cenk: all right. richard, i want you to stay with us if you can. and i want to bring in in the next segment someone who writ the nra in disgust, and i want to talk to both of you about what should be the legislation, and both of you guys care a lot about guns. that's why i want to have that conversation when we come back from the break. and very proud of that. >>beltway politics from inside the loop. >>we tackle the big issues here in our nation's capital, around the country and around the globe. >>dc columnist and four time emmy winner bill press opens current's morning news block. >>we'll do our best to carry the flag from 6 to 9 every morning. >>liberal and proud of it. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry
. >> the basic idea of the key stone excel pipeline is to bring tar sand oil from canada down into the united states. zenaphobia isn't the issue here. what that matters is whether we are expanding our fossil fuel infrastructure and dumps more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere or whether we're going to make a transition into renewables and other technology that don't use the atmosphere as a waste dump. >> cenk: what happens if we bring in the tar sand oils? is an epic disaster real, and how so? >> well, i maybe take a slightly different perspective than jim hansen in i don't think that the emissions from the oil, from this particular pipeline tips the scales to make the difference between a disaster and a wonderful idyllic in life. it sense a symbol to the world of the concrete action we say take. if president obama wants a legacy as being the president who turned u.s. energy policy around, and started getting us transitioned from the old fossil fuel based economy from the last century to the near zero emission energy system of the 21st century, then he needs to deny the permit to this pipe
for the united states. how will the future act on the kidnappings? how will the americans act when it comes to the kidnappings? do you see them getting involved to save them? what do you think? >> you know, it's a continuous and self-perpetuateing cycle. it's a remote part of algeria. al-qaeda is pretty well fortified there. at the same token it's hard to see obama sitting by and doing nothing while al-qaeda or what we're calling al-qaeda hold hostages. the more militarism you engage to what we'll call terrorism, the more it fuels that part of the world and then the more terrorism, the tit for tat not unlike what has called the palestinians and israelis to be at war. we'll be continue to go trigger retaliatory acts like this that in turn cause more militarism and cause more anti-americanism and militarism. >> cenk: lindsay, when you were with the c.i.a. how was this resolved? obviously it wasn't resolved, but, look, if we don't get involved we have possible bad guys working against our interest. if we do get involved, we oftentimes have blow back. how do you resolve that. >> the thing about
in as influential as a trio at a time when the united states is endangered by increasing turmoil in a huge swath of the world from north korea all the way to mali and niger. and i think we're going to be facing it this year and next year really serious security problems. i think a professional tough-minded team probably is a very good choice. >> cenk: on hagel i agree with you but i have hesitation on brennan. you see brennan who is so morally conflicted, i don't know if we should or shouldn't but he always says press the button. on signature strike we're killing people when we have no idea who they are based on the signature of their activities. to me progressives should be a little bit more unfortunate about that, but it doesn't seem like there is vehement opposition because the president is supporting it. does that trouble you? >> i don't know enough about it, and i'm not trying to evade your question. but my sense is--selectable targets which a high probability of collateral damage. there are some experts on the team of the decision making process so that this kind of an issue is quickly vet
that will eventually go before the united states supreme court. that's why this election was so important. if there are any vacancy on the supreme court board it is important to appoint pro-choice justices, and we have to keep fighting. especially in these states that are dominated by these ultra conservative right wing legislatures and governors where they're passing these horrific laws in an tempt to close down access. right now in the state of mississippi there is one clinic in the entire state serving one is one of the poorest populations with the highest maternal mortality rates in this country. that governor and that legislature is determined to close that only clinic. we've got to be vigilant. we've got to fight. we have public opinion on our side by the way. even in a state like mississippi. we beat the person hood initiative 58-42. we beat the public. what we don't have are the governors and state legislatures and governors. we have to keep fighting. >> kathy spillar. thank you for coming on. i really appreciate it. coming up we have oprah winfrey interfere with lance armstrong.
, we talk the severe injustice. there is injustice in the united states, as well. let's start with india. a 23-year-old woman was brutally raped again and again on a bus for hours and then tossed on the side of the road. now, five people have been charged with rape, and murder in this case, because she died from severe internal injuries. we have more. let's take a look. >> the demand for justice is familiar now. the sign holding a mock funeral for the victim of the december 16 gaining rape case, the tipping point for a country which largely ignored crimes against women. rape is the fastest growing crime in india according to national crime records bureau data. a rape trial can take up to nine years. the government appears to have given in to pressure from the streets to set a fast track course and speed up a criminal case which has captured the nation's attention. >> cenk: nine years for a rape trial? this is what happens and so some degree, i'm glad they're out in the streets to a large degree. if you don't have just the court system, people are going to try to look for justi
to look at professional football like any unsafe industry in the united states and we should want nfl players to have the best possible health care, the best possible protections that they could possibly have. i mean, just because the sport is unsafe doesn't mean we should just throw our hands up and say i guess it's just unsafe at any speed. there are ways it can be made more safe. after the findings came out about junior having c.t.e., the national football players association put out a very aggressive statement even calling on u.s. congressional intervention to make sure there were independent doctors on the sidelines at nfl games independent concussion evaluators on the sidelines for nfl games and much more independent oversight of how the nfl handles all medical issues, not just concussions, but all of them. i can tell you as someone who lives in washington where we're going through r.g.3 gate right now about the injury with his knee buckling on that incredibly unsafe turf, that is something fans are very willing to hear. >> teddy roosevelt intervened in college football and said
five great white shark killings from australia to the west coast to the united states worldwide south africa, on average it's five. that movie made people not go swimming worldwide and killed half the business for two years. and some actuaries show people cut back going to the beach 10% 10percent percentpercent 30-plus years later. it's the same with the guns. to be killed with a semiautomatic in school is rare. it's still a terrible tragedy but they take it and project it. but when obama kills people with a drone, there is no crime. >> cenk: i get that. i think the drone program is hideous, and we talk about it all the time. jon stewart made a fair point. you're talking about imaginary problems like the shark problem. >> so this is what it is. their paranoid feel of a possible distopic future prevents us from addressing our actual distopic present. we cannot discuss the gung deaths that are happening every year because a few of us must remain vigilant begins the rise of a imaginary hitler. >> cenk: you're worried about the imagethe imaginary sharks. i don't want to say it in a dismis
